Have you ever started a business or a project, put all of your energy into it…only to question if it was really your calling when the passion or drive ran out?

This is something that SO many brilliant entrepreneurs go through, and sadly the place where many are left with a partially-built business. From there, they start over again and again wondering if they will ever find their true calling.

Can I let you in on a secret?

This isn’t a calling issue – it’s actually a common personality trait if you’re a visionary!

If you haven’t already, take the Rocket Fuel Visionary & Integrator Assessment to see where you fall on the spectrum. It’s so eye-opening! 

AND, if you want a deep dive on the topic – check out my interview with Mark Winters called Rocket Fuel for Your Business: Visionary & Integrator.

A little while back, I was in a training session with my NeuroCoaching Certification™ clients when the topics of “calling” and “boredom” were brought up. In this week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast, I talk all about this, and I have first hand experience because I used to get stuck in this bait and switch cycle too.

A visionary will see things that no one else sees, and will take immediate action. As visionaries, if we don’t have people around us who are gifted as integrators – those who LOVE the details, systems, processes, and structure (you know, those things that not all of us are proficient at), then we lose interest and start something new.

If you’re ready to STOP using your emotions and “lack of passion” as a reason to turn a hard left in your business, then I’ve got your back (and brain) in this episode. Have a pen and paper? Amazing – let’s dive in!

The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are:

  • It’s not that you’re not called to the thing you love to do, it’s that you’re doing the things that you don’t love and therefore it’s feeling heavy.

If you’re a visionary, you’re not passionate about the details – you’re passionate about the transformation. That is where you need to be spending your time. The great thing is that there are people who are strong on the integrator spectrum who love the details! Start putting people, systems, and processes in your business that ground you and allow you to show up in the area that lights you up most. [10:45]

  • As a visionary, your success and momentum comes from the other side of structure and systems so you are allowed to show up just in your genius.

Ask yourself, “what are the things that are dragging me down and do I have the support?” If you’re saying “But Dr. Shannon, I can’t afford to hire an integrator.” You can’t afford not to because that’s where visions and dreams go to die in the, “I can’t afford.” Your vision and impact on the world depends on you staying grounded in your calling. [13:01]

  • So many people pivot into a new project because it feels less resistant.

This idea that “It should be easy if you’re in alignment” is something being taught online that isn’t true and really is negligent. You CAN train your brain to believe, “when I step into resistance and do things that seem hard, I am in alignment.” So often the most beautiful place of alignment is when you’re doing the hardest things you’ve ever done, and there’s no manual because no one has ever gone there before. [15:21]

Your million dollar business is on the other side of you standing in your calling, getting grounded, having support around you, and then leaning into the resistance and the hard things that have never been done before because you are blazing a trail!

I don’t want to see any more brilliant entrepreneurs like you fall for the bait and switch, and pivot your business when you’re so close to gold.

Until next week, remember, you are the creator of your thoughts. Show your brain exactly what you want… then go out and make it happen!
